You can see last time's winners at the end of this post : )

So let's see what the team have made this week! ....

Claire C I've used some of the gorgeous papers from the Gingerbread Twist Cd and one of the lovely images from the Fredericka mini CD collection, I've coloured her with Graph'It Markers
Karon - It was my daughter's birthday at the end of November and I had to make a card off her Sister.  The images and paper are from the Studio 12 Picknix 2 CD, Gingerbread Twist.  The main sentiment I made up and typed in Word. The little ticket sentiment is from the Cherryblossom Lane CD.

Zoe - As I have a friend with a birthday on Christmas day this challenge was perfect for me! I used the gorgeous images from Studio 12 - Picknix Garden collection and I created this topper in Serif Craft Artist where I used digital brushes to add snow over the images. Once printed off I added some sparkle to enhance the winter feel of it, and some ribbon too. Simple matting and layering finished it all off.
Sally - Christmas Birthday Card - I used my favourite image from the Home for Christmas CD Rom and coloured her with my Graph'it markers. Adhered her to some background papers from my crafty stash if polkadoodle papers. Coloured a sentiment so it matched the colour scheme and there it is.
Asha - I made a birthday card with a Christmas flair. The papers are from PickNix 2 CD Gingerbread Twist and the image is from the "Angelberry" CD. I don't think this card needs too many embellishments. Some ribbon, a few bling and Crystal Stickles on the angel's wings and I'm done. This will do nicely for my friend whose birthday falls on Dec 27th. 
Alethea - I made this card in super quick time using papers, sentiment and images from the Picknix Collection 1 cd Rom.  I then added the ribbon and added the kindyglitz to the cupcake to finish it off!! Oh and I did a bit of sewing :)
Miria I made a Christmas birthday card for a male or maybe for a teacher. Paper and sentiments are from cd Studio 12 Picknix 2,the blackboard is from cd  Studio 12 - Picknix Garden collection . I just distressed the edges and added some die cut snowflakes.
Rebekah - It's my daughter's birthday tomorrow (when did I become a mother of a teenager?!) so I made this card, perfect for her, in pretty pinks and creams. The papers I have used are all from Picknix cd rom 1 from the All sewn up collection. My image is one of the cute Emma Canning digis at Polkadoodles and the cute leather effect ta is also from the Picknix CD, check out my blog for more details.
So there is the inspiration from the team this week - gorgeous Christmas Birthday cards all round!
